If you’re a fan of home design, you know that summer sun brings new backyard trends. You may also already know that in 2017, we’re celebrating the seamless transition from indoor to outdoor living spaces.
In our blog post, 2017 Home Design Trends from Bay Area Designers, landscape designer Katharine Webster talked about embracing the merging of interior and exterior this year. That means we’re bringing interior elements to our patios, but we’re also bringing natural elements inside.
To fuel your home inspiration, we put together a list of the most stunning Bay Area homes on the market that embrace this trend. If you fall in love with any of these homes, follow the links to find out when you can visit in person!
Fresh Air Inside + Out

This bright Emeryville condo is the perfect example of merging interior and exterior design. With an expansive deck just off the living room, there’s plenty of room to let your design style run wild. And inside, the raised ceiling and huge windows invite the light in so you can take a breath of fresh air without ever leaving your home!
Industrial Meets Cozy in SoMa

If you’re looking for trendy design inspiration, this SoMa condo has it all — industrial, glamorous and modern both inside and on the outdoor patio. When you’re not warming up fireside in the chic, concrete living room, step outside for partial Downtown views and space to entertain.
A Sunny Garden Soiree

We love the idea of turning an outdoor living space into an outdoor dining area. This Berkeley home has the perfect sunny spot — whether you’re hosting a large cocktail party or a quaint garden gathering. Make the space even brighter with a pop of color from sunshine yellow chairs!
Quirky Character in Forest Knolls

If you thought you couldn’t find views, charm and elegance all in one place, we have a pleasant surprise for you! This jaw-dropping Forest Knolls home will steal your breath more with every room you explore. You’ll think you’ve seen it all until you step from the interior living room directly onto the balcony. From there, you can step down the spiral staircase and lounge on the secluded backyard patio.
Outdoor Entertaining at its Finest

You don’t have to look very hard to find out why we love this home’s outdoor living room. Whether you’re entertaining on the shaded deck or sharing memories around the fire pit, you’ll be surrounded by stunning design and elegant dry landscaping. It may be tough to stay inside — even on rainy days!
80-85-95 Olema Bolinas Road | Listed by Lotte and Sarah
Because this Bolinas property has three homes nestled on 56 acres, you have plenty of options for lounging both indoors and out. Our favorite interior and exterior spaces can be found in the bright, modern main house. With French doors and a sliding door on two different walls, you can seamlessly transition from the enclosed sunroom to the garden oasis outside.
